Question
Hi Tracie
I was going to give my beardie panacur for treatment of worms,but unsure how long to give for.I have the correct dosage for her weight,but not sure if i give one doze then repeat after 10days or give for a week.My vet has left the practice where i used to go and unfortunately there is no other qualified vet in my area.A few years ago she prescribed panacur and i remember giving for a week!?I would be grateful for your help.
Many thanks
Gwen

Answer
Hello Gwen,

I normally recommend giving Panacur once every 7 days, for a maximum of 3 treatments.
What are the levels of worms in the sample?
How is your dragon doing overall, eating well or is he not eating or basking?

Let me know how that goes for you.

Expertise

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.

Experience

I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

Education/Credentials
I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
